  1. I don’t understand the push with STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) jobs? If you don’t naturally like these types of fields and disciplines you probably are not going to end up having a job in that field.

    You can’t force kids or people to do jobs they don’t actually want to do. Of course a lot of people end up with jobs they hate anyway! 🙂

    1. I think the idea behind programs like these is to show kids that there is more to it than they might have thought. I know when I was younger and starting college, I thought there were basically three jobs in IT: computer nerd, management for computer nerds, and Radio Shack. I would have never have thought of automotive or any of the other of the thousands of industries in which geeks are needed. 🙂

      1. I guess that makes sense Aaron. Keep in mind technology has changed a lot in a relatively short period of time. There are a lot more jobs in IT and tech nowadays than when you graduated college I assume.
